New Jersey Brownfields Inter Agency Work Group

Understanding Brownfields redevelopment is integral for New Jersey's municipalities, and realizing the need for effective collaboration between State and Federal entities for successful Brownfields redevelopment, the New Jersey Business Action Center's Office for Planning Advocacy have partnered with EPA's Region II Brownfields Program, NJ Department of Environmental Protection and the Center for Creative Land Recycling to form the New Jersey Brownfields InterAgency Work Group (IAWG).

Using a proactive and problem solving team approach, the IAWG offers assistance, guidance and resources to municipalities and any their redevelopment partners as the municipality navigates the complex road to assess, remediate and redevelop Brownfields.

The IAWG is comprised of a diverse group of experienced State and Federal Agencies whose mission is to support the State of New Jersey's Brownfields redevelopment policies and the US EPA's Brownfields Economic Development Initiative.
